Inhaltsangabe

The Wheel of Time is a PBS Great American Read Selection! 

Now in development for TV! 

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

In Towers of Midnight, the Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One's prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight.The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. 

Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck. To prevail, he must seek answers in Tel'aran'rhiod and find a way - at long last - to master the wolf within him or lose himself to it forever. 

Meanwhile, Matrim Cauthon prepares for the most difficult challenge of his life. The creatures beyond the stone gateways - the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn - have confused him, taunted him, and left him hanged, his memory stuffed with bits and pieces of other men's lives. He had hoped that his last confrontation with them would be the end of it, but the Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills. The time is coming when he will again have to dance with the Snakes and the Foxes, playing a game that cannot be won. The Tower of Ghenjei awaits, and its secrets will reveal the fate of a friend long lost. 

Dovie'andi se tovya sagain. It's time to toss the dice. 

TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce.

wirklich sehr gut

Ich muss zugeben, dass mir die letzten beiden Bücher, die von Brandon Sanderson nach Notizen von Robert Jordan geschrieben wurden, besser gefallen, als die "Originale". Irgendwie versteht es Brandon Sanderson auf eine ganz eigene Art, den Spannungsbogen zu erhalten und zu vertiefen.
Auch die Entwicklung der einzelnen Hauptcharaktere ist sehr gut gelungen, ich hoffe, dass Lan noch genug Raum erhält, er ist einer meiner Lieblings-Nebendarsteller.
Für neue Hörer dürfte von Interesse sein, dass sich der Sprecher der männlichen Abschnitte der Bücher (also aus der Sicht von Mat, Rand, Perrin, etc.) geschrieben, deutlich verbessert hat. Ich habe mir gestern aus Neugierde nochmals "The Eye of the World" angehört und war entsetzt, wie gehetzt und teilweise lieblos dieses Buch doch teilweise gelesen wurde. Ein Lob an Michael Kramer, dass er sich über die Reihe hinweg so gesteigert hat, schade, dass die ersten Bücher so "verhunzt" wurden.

Großartig

Gänsehaut pur. Das 12te Buch war schon deutlich besser. Dieses ist der Hammer. Sanderson bringt frischen Wind und endlich wieder Spannung in die Bücher. Ich bin froh, dass ich durchgehalten habe.

Typisches vorletztes Buch

Die Handlung kommt kaum voran und das Finale wird vorbereitet.
Vieles scheint willkürlich und wenig schlüssig.
Hoffe das nächste ist wieder besser.

fantastic and amazing

A worthy episode, maybe the best. I’m looking forward to the final episode. Brandon Sanderson did a great job. All is ready for the last battle. Many storylines come together in this book.

It could never have been 38 hours!

Great! I did never think that this story will come to an end. Mr. Sanderson, if you read this, than please accept my deep thanks for the work on these books. I can feel that there is now the spirit of two dedicated and passionate writers in it. The choice of words and the pattern of the sentences are artistic. I am very happy, that I continued to listen to these audio books. They truly touched me. Also the reading from Michael Kramer and Kate Reading is (as always) wonderful. I hope that I will not have to wait too long for the final book. But on the other hand... it might – no it will be worth the waiting.

Verschlungene Wege

Es ist einfach genial. Handlungsstränge, die in vorherigen Büchern angefangen werden werden weitergeführt. Passiert dies, wird man automatisch dazu animiert nachzudenken "wie hat das eigentlich angefange?" Ich warte nun gespannt auf den letzten Band um endlich herauszufinden wie das Abenteuer ausgeht.
Ich denke, wer einmal Feuer beim "Rad der Zeit" gefangen hat hält auch bis zum Ende durch.

Nice

Dieses Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen. Zwischendurch hat mich die Freude beim hören schon etwas verlassen aber mit diesem Buch ist alles wider gerettet. Freue mich schon auf den letzten Teil der Reihe.
Klare Kaufempfehlung

The "Middle Book" Problem

I finished listening to this really good audio book.
After "The Gathering Storm", Brandon Sanderson was anew able to give us a really good book from "The Wheel of Time". Well with the high expectations I had from listening to the former and Brandons other Books I was satisfied, but not overwhelmed.

It is not his best book, but its a really good one. The problem here might have been, that Brandon Sanderson did a lot of great ones and that it's a "Middle Book". He has to prepare everything for the big ending in the next book but still has to tie some string, dangeling from the previous one. It's simply not possible to make the middle book as good, as the first or last of a trilogy, just because you explored the big mystery and you can't have the climax yet.

Dont forget the narrators. Again Michael Kramer and Kate Readding did an astounding job with this.

Maybe I do the book some wrong, by giving "only" 4 stars, maybe not, you have to decide for yourself. If you like audio books and want to know the end of "The Wheel of Time" it's a must. And as I said... it's a really good book.
